A simplified correlation for the air-side heat transfer coefficient exhibited from plate finned heat exchangers was accomplished. The development of the present formula was based on the implementation of the Buckingham-pi theorem. The physical dimensions of the plate fin parameters and tube geometry of the heat exchanger were incorporated in the correlation to reveal their effect on air-side heat transfer coefficient. It is intended to be used for air dry bulb and wet bulb temperatures in the range 16–40 °C and 13–20 °C through the tube banks, respectively. It is valid for transverse to longitudinal tube pitches ratio of XT/XL = 0.75 and 0.83. The air-side Reynolds number based on maximum flow velocity and equivalent tube diameter to be in the range of 2.2 × 103 ≤ Re ≤ 8.75 × 103. The total mean absolute errors of the predicted overall heat transfer coefficient and heat duty were 10% and 13%, respectively.
